About the Artist

I am an abstract mixed media artist based in Washington, DC. Over the past fifteen years or so, abstract painting has become for me a deeply satisfying pursuit. My training has taken place mainly at the Art League School, in Alexandria, Va., and at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC. Earlier in my life I've been a writer and a teacher of writing and also practiced art therapy. I also hold a PhD in Arts in Education, with an emphasis on applied storytelling, and was involved in the creation of the Healing Story Alliance of the National Storytelling Network. I am a fervent believer in the power of the arts, in all their forms, to reveal and celebrate what it means to be human.
